Hypoxia promotes adherence of leukocytes to endothelial cells by inducing expression of adhesion molecules like intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1). Increased serum levels of circulating ICAM-1 (cICAM-1) have been reported in adults with sleep apnea and associated hypoxemia. This investigation assessed the hypothesis that the overnight change of(More)
Higher or similar systolic and/or diastolic blood pressure has been recorded in children with sleep apnea compared to subjects with primary snoring or in those with primary snoring compared to controls. To investigate the association between blood pressure and habitual snoring, we studied children in four randomly selected schools in central Greece. A(More)
Although obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is related to dyslipidemia in adults, limited data are available regarding its effects on serum lipids during childhood. Aim of this study was to assess the potential relationships between severity of OSA and cholesterol or triglyceride levels in a cohort of Greek children. Data from children with snoring who underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in children has been associated with increased ventricular strain and decreased left ventricle (LV) diastolic function. The aim of this study was to assess systolic myocardial function in children with SDB of variable severity. METHODS Children who were referred for polysomnography during the study(More)
OBJECTIVES Non-enhanced computed tomography (NECT) of the brain is used to exclude intracranial hemorrhage in patients who are considered for treatment with tissue plasminogen activator due to stroke symptoms. However, early infarct signs on NECT have low sensitivity for ischemic stroke. It was hypothesized that horizontal conjugate eye deviation (average(More)
